Last night I cleaned up the tanks a little bit and added fresh food. My roman snails are enjoying their huge water soak dish so much. Sometimes two of them will sit there for hours. There’s one there right now even though it’s cold.
I hesitated to add this dish to the tank. It’s a calculated risk. A fall on top of it would surely cause shell injury. However, it is in the center of the large tank and nowhere near the edges. The mesh lid of my tank is covered in vines, and the snails don’t favor sleeping there, much preferring the glass walls or just burying themselves. Falls do happen, but they are always more like… slides, down the walls of the tank. So I think they are safe. And they enjoy this so, so very much.
But nonetheless I think I will try to find a plastic one that is similar. Or rather, softer plastic. This one is plastic but it’s too hard.
I really need to get to sharing photos of my little guys more often. I just love them so dearly.
Can’t wait for Christmas so I can nerd out with my new snail and slug book that everyone pitched in to get me. 🐌📚 I hope it helps me take better care of my snailios!
What do you want for Christmas most of all? Do you think you are going to get it?
I’m starting to regret my good intentions of not sharing my wishlist anywhere. ^_^; But, I would be a hypocrite if I shared it now, so I won’t.
